Twinners reconnect with "apéro virtuel"

Home » Latest News » Twinners reconnect with "apéro virtuel"

With travel restrictions meaning that the biennial trip to our twinned town at the beginning May couldn't take place, another means of reconnecting with our French friends had to be considered. Seldom lacking in ideas, The Curry Rivel & District Twinning Association's committee hit upon the innovative proposition of having an "apéro virtuel" (virtual aperitif).
On Sunday 3 May at midday (1.00pm in France) members on both sides of the Channel linked up via Zoom. Some 24 households in Curry Rivel and Chevilly took part and everyone seemed happy to be able to wave, say "bonjour", chat, and raise a glass. Although members were only online for around half an hour there was sufficient time to exchange news and, importantly, to reinforce the continuing friendship between our two communities.
When the Coronavirus ceases to threaten our normal way of life, twinners will once again be able to visit our friends. Indeed, a visit to Chevilly is planned for May 2021!
